We dare you to make this year’s Mystery Quilt! Yes, you will have to do some thinking about your quilt design.
Yes, you might even learn something new.
We dare you … We promise it won’t be too hard – how hard can a panel be?
We promise not to make you do too much work over the holidays.
We promise to help you over the phone, or at one of the library sew-ins. You might even like it enough to do it again.
We promise you’ll love your finished quilt.
Part 2 of the 2013 – 2014 Mystery Quilt instructions have been posted on the Projects page.
There will be a very few copies available at the meeting for those without computer/printer access.
Want some help? MysteryQuilt@mvquilters.org or join us at one of the library sew-ins.
So, we dare you … Jan Taylor, Cathy Harnisch and Carol Sullivan
Suzanne Marshall, from St. Louis, taught a class for us on appliqué. Twenty MVQ members enjoyed her teaching skills. Here you see her on the floor showing how she does appliqué and the second photo is a close up of her technique where she does stitching around her appliqué to enhance the items. She also taught a class on hand quilting where she gave many tips and techniques and shared almost 25 types of batting to try and quilt through.
The sewing night at the Kelley Library has been changed. Due to budget cuts the library is no longer open on Tuesday evenings, so we will be sewing there on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 6-9. The dates are January 25th, February 22, March 28, April 25, May 23, and June 27. All are welcome. For more info contact Carol Sullivan.
Why not come to Plaistow Library, Saturday, Jan. 21 – 9:30- 3:30 and learn crazy quilting, silk ribbon embroidery etc from our member Susan Richards. For just $5 you will have a day filled with sewing, enjoyment of friends and no housework, kids, meals etc to distract you!!! Where can you get all that for a day for $5. We only have a couple of spots left so don’t get left out. If interested contact Gail Wozniak .
The “Unfinished Object” auction will be held at the February meeting.
This is a fun night and a major fundraiser for MVQ.
If you are planning to donate a large item to the bring it UFO Auction, please DO NOT to the January Meeting. Instead, tell me what the item is, and I will include it in the list of things for the Auction. Then, DO bring it to the February Meeting (UFO Auction night).
- Please hold on to books and magazines that you might want to donate. I will be accepting them AFTER the UFO Auction for the Boutique. Better yet, bring them directly to the Quilt Show Set up Day. They are better suited for that venue. Thank you!
